Poisonous gas 'at a fatal level'

DanHolohanDanHolohan Posts: 14,701Member, Moderator, Administrator
TWO men accused of causing the death of a

holidaymaker in Cornwall were responsible for installing and

commissioning a boiler which pumped "fatal levels" of poisonous gas into

the room where the man died, a court was told yesterday.

Contractors Jonathan Mark Mingo and Phillip David Hodge

are accused of the manslaughter of father-of-two Frederick Jackson, 52,

from South Wales, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a hotel

room in Newquay.

Mingo, 36, of Cormorant Drive, St Austell, is charged

with unlawfully killing Mr Jackson by gross negligence, as he was

responsible for the design specification and installation of a boiler

flue pipe.

Hodge, 48, of Polmear Road, St Austell, is also charged

with unlawful killing by gross negligence, on the grounds that he was

responsible for commissioning the boiler system.<a href=""></a>
